Sergeant Alvin C. York State Historic Park is located nine miles north of Jamestown in Pall Mall, Tennessee and pays tribute to one of the most decorated soldiers of World War I. The park includes a visitor center modeled after York’s general store, his two-story house, a gristmill, the York Bible School, and various picnic facilities. The York Farm was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977. Just outside the park are the Wolf River Methodist Church where he experienced his religious conversion and the Wolf River Cemetery which includes the burial site of Sgt. York and his wife, Miss Gracie. While these properties are not owned by the park, they are accessible as part of the driving tour or via the park hiking trail.

GUIDED TOURS
Park guides offer daily walking tours of the York home. The 45 minute tour focuses on the York home, where York, the World War 1 hero and his wife, Gracie, raised their children after the conclusion of World War 1.

The park also offers a paid driving tour of the Wolf River Valley every Saturday and Sunday. Locations include the original home site and the York Bible School.
